testing, model risk analysis and improved search

LONDON/NEW YORK, May 20, 2014 -
Thomson Reuters, the world's leading source of intelligent information for
businesses and professionals, today announced the delivery of several
significant enhancements to its award winning Accelus Risk Manager, which
will enable organisations to further strengthen their approach to enterprise
risk management. The new capabilities include:

· Fully-integrated sensitivity and stress testing capabilities in the
quantification module provides quick and easy regulatory stress testing as
well as model risk analysis.
· Advanced visualisation capabilities enable the creation of
interactive graphs and maps e.g. users can now view risk levels relative to
agreed appetite for risk plotted across a world map.
· A new powerful search functionality enables comprehensive analysis
of the causes and effects of risks across all available information such as
risks, controls and documents.

"These substantial new features reflect how Thomson Reuters Accelus Risk
Manager teams are connecting our technologies together to help drive risk
management excellence in partnership with our users," said Chris Perry,
managing director, Risk at Thomson Reuters. "Conversations with our clients,
in one-to-one visits as well as in our user groups, have driven these
developments together with the richness of Thomson Reuters expertise in the
market."

"The enhancements form part of Thomson Reuters ongoing program of investment
in our Accelus governance, risk and compliance platform," Perry adds.
"Further work is ongoing to Accelus Risk Manager, including continued user
interface development. We continue to develop our offerings to meet and help
future-proof our clients' evolving regulatory and operational requirements,
including ongoing developments in regulatory obligation including conduct,
ORSA and Solvency II, emerging risks, and demands for improved governance."

Accelus Risk Manager enables organisations to establish a framework for
operational risk and enterprise risk management based on their risk appetite.
It empowers executives to actively manage risks across their business, track

senior management and the board more effectively. Risk managers can also more
effectively analyse risk intelligence through the lenses of their
organisations various structures and reporting lines, so that both the cause

The risk data housed in Accelus Risk Manager powers the solution's stress
tests, including Advanced Measurement Approach operational risk capital
modelling, Monte Carlo simulations and other forms of statistical analysis to
help executives better communicate with regulators and understand the
challenges their business faces.
